Nordost Blue Heaven
Nordost’s Blue Heaven range is the third tier in our entry-level, Leif family. A reference amongst affordably priced audio cables, the Blue Heaven range has made a big impact on music enthusiasts and has been converting hifi novices into audiophiles for years.
Blue Heaven cables incorporate Nordost’s core cable design, including silver-plated, solid core conductors and their innovative FEP extrusion process as well as integrating patented Micro Mono-Filament technology in its power and digital interconnect cables. This combination provides a near perfect virtual air dielectric with excellent mechanical damping. Thanks to such precise and advanced engineering, listeners are able to enjoy both the subtle nuances and explosive dynamics captured in a recording that would otherwise be lost in transmission.
Our extensive Blue Heaven range allows consumers to maintain a consistent sonic signature and design philosophy throughout an entire system. Whether you are seeking audio, video, personal or portable cables, Blue Heaven has the solution. Only Blue Heaven cables will enable you to reap this caliber of superior performance out of each one of your components at such a reasonable price point.
Nordost Blue Heaven – Power CordRRP from $269 for 1m unit Contact us for advice
When you listen to your system, you are actually listening to the AC mains supply. This makes the most important cables in your system the ones feeding power into the equipment. They are responsible for the raw material that gets turned into the sound. Nordost employs FEP insulation and its high-speed, low-loss Micro Mono-Filament construction to deliver the best possible power source for your system.
The Blue Heaven Power Cord seems like a conventional, three-core AC cord, but don’t be fooled. The use of Nordost’s proven, proprietary high-speed, low-loss Micro Mono-Filament construction and FEP insulation throughout transforms its performance and the performance of your system. When it comes to your equipment’s power supply, you need quality as well as quantity, and the Blue Heaven Power Cord delivers both, making it the crucial foundation on which to build your system’s performance. It is available in a full range of AC plug options.
Available in lengths from 1 metre
Nordost Blue Heaven – Analogue InterconnectsRRP from $430 for 0.6m RCA pair Contact us for advice
The Blue Heaven LS Analog Interconnect is a fully-shielded design that can be terminated for balanced or single-ended connection. It employs four, heavy-gauge 24 AWG, silver-plated 99.9999% OFC solid core conductors, precision wound in a minimum cross-section configuration that eliminates unnecessary fillers or padding elements. The insulation is high-grade FEP, selected for its superior dielectric performance, while the elegant minimalism extends to the carefully selected low-mass connectors and differential grounding. Like all Nordost cables, the Blue Heaven LS Analog Interconnect is manufactured and hand-terminated in the USA, enabling us to further guarantee consistent performance. The result is a high-speed, low-loss interconnect that preserves the sense of musical power and momentum, bringing believable shape and presence to performers, color, life and drama to their performances.
Available in lengths from 0.6m pair with RCA or XLR connectors
Nordost Blue Heaven – Digital InterconnectsRRP from $300 for 1m unit Contact us for advice
The safe transfer of digital data streams depends on achieving accurate impedance within the transmission chain. The S/PDIF transmission standard dictates a 75 Ohm co-axial lead, but it is surprising how few cables meet that specification.
The Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect is a true 75 Ohm conductor. Employing a Micro Mono-Filament, co-axial construction. This advanced topology allows us to achieve superior electrical performance and geometrical accuracy, irrespective of cable length. The Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect ensures high-speed, low-loss characteristics and, due to its BNC termination, the 75 Ohm standard is maintained, even across the connectors. Each Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect is supplied with a pair of true 75 Ohm BNC to RCA adaptors, making the cable consistent in performance across any combination of co-axial inputs or outputs.
Available in lengths from 1 metre.
Nordost Blue Heaven – Speaker CablesRRP from $670 for 1m pair Contact us for advice
Nordost’s original Flatline loudspeaker cable introduced the audio world to an entirely new level of performance and a unique production technique. Our proprietary, extruded FEP cables, with their thin, flat profile don’t just look different – their deceptive simplicity is a uniquely elegant answer to the conflicting requirements for low resistance, capacitance and inductance that limit the performance of more conventional cable configurations. Now, by re-examining the geometry of each cable, we have reduced dielectric effects still further as well as optimized the physical spacing of the conductors. These advantageous electrical characteristics, combined with the intrinsic geometrical accuracy of ribbon configuration, deliver unprecedented dynamic response, phase accuracy and detail. The result is a combination of natural, unfettered dynamics and clarity that make your music and movies more accessible, more involving and more lifelike. The original Blue Heaven was a hard act to follow, but the LS version easily exceeds the performance of its renowned predecessor, bringing even budget electronics and speakers to life.
Available in lengths from 1 metre pair with banana or spade connectors
